Hello, ladies! You would be surprised after finding what’s going on at the most recent New York Fashion Week! This year’s fashion show is utterly dominated by the element of love and subtle romance. And before you jump into conclusion, saying that it will be gleefully boring as the designs will mostly be centered on pink-hued dress or cute little wardrobes, wait until I say that it was not that bad of a show. The people on the background managed to hold a show with romance as its main theme—with a twist! Now imagine a world of fairy tale, where the characters in it are all about love and romance only it is interpreted by each one of them according to their own preferences: the dark or the innocence.

Yes, honey, this year’s New York Fashion Week was plagued by the likes of blackish sultry dresses and, on the opposite site, bright-ish playful getups. The juxtaposition of these two interpretations surely benefits both side of the world. If for all this time you are constantly bombarded by the paradigm that dictates a strict rule as to what a romantic attire should be, now be prepared to get that paradigm you are chronically instilled with reconstructed.

Take the Alice and Olivia Fairy tale collection for example. In addition to a strong flavor of Victorian era, you will get a dress with low cut on the front part and high cut on the lower part. And IT IS IN BLACK, for Cupid’s sake. How often can you picture a dress that bombastically sexy and sultrily intense and is categorically a romantic-themed getup? Mysterious, it is often called; but not this time, it’s not! Stacey Bendet, the designer of the dress even went as far as writing her own take on fairy tale to prove that beauty is equally appreciated in the dark side of the world.
